Born in South Korea and raised in France by adoptive parents, Frédérique Benoît, a.k.a. Freddie, is an arrogant, mercurial, and unyielding 25-year-old in search of answers. Unfamiliar with her native language or the intricacies of Korean culture, she spontaneously travels ‘home’ after being rerouted by a typhoon. There, she befriends a hotel employee named Tena, who sets her on the path to finding her biological parents and unearthing her origin story. While her mother remains a mystery, Freddie successfully confronts her eager father. But much is lost in translation and her impetuous journey leaves her already heavy baggage packed with more questions than answers.

RETURN TO SEOUL is a spectacular voyage for anyone in search of home or for eternal travelers who already know that it’s not the destination – it’s the journey. (source:
